Description
The Space

The bedroom we offer is on the first floor, has one double and one single bed so can be booked as a double, twin or 'family' room for parents and a child under 15. (We can add an additional bed to take a family of two adults and two children.) The room has a TV and a large en-suite shower room.

Guest Access

We encourage guests to treat our home as their home while they are with us. If you want to come and sit with us you will be made very welcome but you can also use our guest lounge and library in which you will find a good selection of books on Orkney and by Orcadian authors.

Interaction with Guests

We understand that our guests have different needs. If you need information on Orkney then Ray will happily sit and chat for hours with you to help you plan your visits and if you want to see or do something specific then we can hopefully help and if not we can suggest who to contact.

The Neighborhood

Orkney is a wonderful place to visit - we are close to the main neolithic historic sites of Maeshowe, Stones of Stenness, Ness and Ring of Brodgar and Skara Brae along with a host of tombs and brochs all open to the public and most with free access. The Viking heritage is well displayed in Birsay, Orphir and Kirkwall (the magnificant St Magnus cathedral) - all a few minutes drive away. The wartime history is on display in Lyness, Stromness and can be seen in several other places. For those interested in scenery we have everything from mountains and moorland to cliffs and beaches. Birdwatchers are well catered for in Orkney with several RSPB owned reserves and purpose built 'hides' around the county. There are several hotels with restaurants within 4 miles and more, along with pubs, retaurants and cafes in Stromness and Kirkwall. If you want to go out and enjoy a drink with your meal we will if we can, run you there and back. There are several music festivals throughout the year, live music in pubs and bars especially at weekends, museums, art galleries and a host of other cultural activities.

Getting Around

We are out in the country and unfortunately Orkney, other than between Stromness, Kirkwall and St Margaret's Hope, is not well served by a frequent bus service. Car hire is available from several local companies and garages but we are not served directly by the national agencies. If you are flying in then you can book a car for collection at the airport. Those coming by ferry for a day or two may find it cheaper to hire a car locally rather than pay for one on the ferry. Cycle Hire is available in both Kirkwall and Stromness but please be aware that the weather here is very changeable.

Other Things to Note

Other than Maeshowe and Skara Brae, most of the neolithic, iron age and viking sites do not have fully paved access so waterproof footwear is recommended.

Place's rules
No smoking in the house - you are welcome to go outside into the garden. The stairs and first floor are carpetted so we ask that you remove outdoor shoes at the front door. We regret that with the exception of 'assistance' dogs we do not have facilities to accommodate pets.

About Shona
Visit Profile
Millions of people are using Airbnb to sleep in strangers' homes, beds, and even couches. They have an amazing selection and you can't find their stuff anywhere else. There is a catch: you often need to contact several hosts to actually get a place to stay, so make sure you give yourself some lead time.
